How Do I Know if My Home Has a Problem?

Some house challenges can be easy to recognize.

Other conditions come about so gradually that many homeowners don’t even detect them.

And while a large number of these issues happen at old homes, owners of new homes may experience them too.

Rio Rancho Crawl Space Waterproofing

If you are consistently getting water under your house, why not have one of these waterproofing specialists check it out and learn what is letting it happen.

Rio Rancho Concrete Slab Lifting Services

When parts of your concrete patio or front walk has sunk and become uneven, they can fix that too.

They use a procedure called mud jacking (often called slabjacking).

Mud jacking is a procedure that incorporates injecting a heavy filler compound under a sunken slab.

filler compound oozes into all the space below the slab and forces the slab to rise up.

After your concrete slabs are all at the same height, your pathway, patio or driveway will look a lot better and people will not be stumbling and tripping on the uneven joints of adjoining segments any more.

Why Does This Issue Happen?

Even if you can never see it happening, soil moves a little over time.

It contracts and expands.

This happens mostly due to exposure to water and shifting temperatures.

Drawing of a house with an out-of-balance foundationAnd even though this activity is tiny and gradual, these expansions and contractions can place stress on whatever building is in or on top of the earth.

And over time, this recurring stress can impact the integrity of even a very solid home.

We might be unable to manage our weather or the soil composition here in New Mexico, but there are several aspects you can control.

To begin with, your lot needs to be graded so that it moves water away from your house.

Second, you’ll need a decent gutter system to stop the rain which lands on your house from pooling nearby it.

One of the leading factors which impact a home is the absorbency of the soil it sits on.

Soil that will soak up and retain lots of moisture will usually expand more than soil which doesn’t retain water well.

We are lucky in most areas of Sandoval County, most of the dirt under our homes is not highly absorbent. That helps a lot.

An additional common cause of property difficulties is having a large tree too near to your home.

This could cause problems when the tree roots snake underneath the residence and place stress on your slab, as well as disturbing water and sewer pipelines.

The expansive roots of a major tree close to your house may also pull considerable amounts of moisture out of the dirt under your building, making it too dry during our Summer season.

These are types of natural environmental stress which can lead to small cracks in your home’s foundation.

Then these very little cracks allow in moisture, and those little cracks get wider every year after that.

Can I Do This Later?

If you think you might have an issue, you should get it looked over.

It may end up that what you were worried about isn’t anything important.

But if you get it examined, at least you’ll know for sure.

Cracks and issues with your cement will never magically improve over time.

It is best to get the problem repaired as quickly as you can.

Your whole home sits on the foundation, it should be watched out for and taken care of.

Water regularly getting under a home may cause trouble such as mold. And mold doesn’t get any better.

It will only get worse.

If you’re taking a look at trying to sell your house, there isn’t any real estate buyer that wants to invest in a property which has any kind of structure ailment or has clear indications of past water seepage down in the crawl space.

And, if you are going to sell your house, it’s your responsibility to let a house buyer know about any physical issues with your house.

If you’re anxious about your situation, it’s best to at least learn where you stand.

Certain scenarios might seem to the homeowner to seem almost too hard to correct.

But a professional can generally correct them.

Sure, the repairs may consist of a tricky task, but they can be done.

Try to not worry until you have all the facts.
